Vibraphonist, composer, educator and Fulbright Alumnus Dimitris Angelakis, a Greek native who came of age as a jazz player in Philadelphia and New York, is proud to announce the arrival of his debut recording LONG WAY HOME (ΠΚ music), playing original compositions and arrangements in a quartet that foregrounds the magical blend of vibraphone and Fender Rhodes electric piano,

with George Kontrafouris (Fender Rhodes/piano), Kimon Karoutzos (bass) and Jason Wastor (drums).

The title of the album is inspired by Greek poet Konstantinos Kavafis, in particular the poem “Ithaca”. Each of the original pieces in the album tell a story, most of them gleaned from inspirations particular to Greece and other travels as well (US, China, Europe), reflecting at the same time his immersion in the sound and culture of American jazz. There are also well known standards written by Bill Evans, Walter Bishop Jr and Jimmy Van Heusen.
